On 9-10 February 2017 ILGA Europe and EATG have jointly implemented a capacity building seminar on the role of LGBTI organisations to address HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s).
The training has been attended by 18 LGBTI activists from various countries in Europe. Training sessions have been delivered by the trainers Jorge Garrido, Spain and Damian Kelly, UK. The training has provided participants with an understanding of the prevention, transmission routes and treatment of HIV and STI’s.
Furthermore, participants and trainers worked together to identify reasons for the separation of LGBTI and HIV activism in the past and discussed approaches of how LGBTI activists and HIV activists could work together in the future.
